John Beck will play ahead of rookie Case Keenum in the Houston Texans' preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers this Saturday, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

John Beck will play ahead of rookie Case Keenum during the Houston Texans' preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers this Saturday, Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com reports. Scurfield added that the Texans may reverse that next week. Either way, Kubiak hopes to play all four quarterbacks in the opener.

Analysis: This admittedly isn't big news on the surface. Matt Schaub is the consensus starter and T.J. Yates is the consensus No. 2. In a perfect world, neither Beck nor Keenum will see the field this season. Schaub played in just nine games last season due to a foot injury, however, and Yates suffered elbow and shoulder injuries late. Beck or Keenum could be called into action out of necessity at some point this season, making the training camp battle an interesting one even if it has no relevance to your upcoming fantasy draft.
